On Tuesday 17th July Years 8 & 9 spent their Criss-Cross Day working across several departments on the theme of “Hamilton, an American Musical”. Students were on a carousel between Dance, Drama, Music, Design & Technology, Humanities and Media. In Performing Arts they had the opportunity to learn performance work from the hip-hop musical which is set during the American War for Independence, learning the history of the key battles and the social geography of immigration in Humanities. In Media the students designed poster campaigns for the musical and created set, costume and makeup designs in D&T.
The students took part in a “show and tell” assembly during PREP at the end of the day and showcased their best work. All staff involved in sessions were really impressed with their creativity and enthusiasm, well done to Year 8 & 9 on another successful cross-curricular day!
